March is upon us and for all you college basketball fans, you know what that means!! March Madness!!! The Big Dance!!!
Selection Sunday is today!!! To learn more about the process and how teams are chosen click here. I mean, you don’t have to, especially if you have no interest in sports, lol. It’ll just help you have a better understanding of how the teams are picked. There is this huge process that takes A LOT of things into consideration in order to be selected and what seeding you get.
As you all know I am a HUGE North Carolina Tar Heel fan! I can’t wait to start filling out my bracket and watching the games! GO TAR HEELS!
If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, be prepared for a bunch of March Madness posts!!! I get so pumped for this time of year!
In other news, sorry for being absent once again. I have been busy with work and then last week I came down with the horrible flu bug and it kept me pretty much bed ridden for a week. The doctor prescribed me Tamiflu and it actually made me sicker! So even though it goes against the doctor’s orders, I stopped taking it. I am not 100% but I’m getting there. I go back to work tomorrow for the first time in a week.
I realize I’ve been neglecting my blog. I’ve missed corresponding with you all! I promise I will try to do better!
How is YOUR day going? Are you a March Madness fanatic like me?
I just finished watching a really close game between the Tar Heels and Notre Dame. Whew, is all I can say! 69-68! On the road! Thanks to Joel Berry’s last second free throws.
I hate close games, lol. My blood pressure rises and my heart rate accelerates! My adrenaline starts flowing and pretty soon I’m yelling at the TV as if they can hear me.
“Shoot the ball!” Don’t shoot the 3!” “Drive to the basket!” are some of the things you can hear me “coaching” to the players.
I’ve been a Tar Heel fan for as long as I can remember. It was the 2005 National Championship win that propelled me into a super fan. Then we won the championship again in 2009 and again last April. Basketball is my absolute favorite sport to watch. The intensity of the game. The passion. It’s amazing.
Sometimes I get too wrapped up in a game and I forget that it’s just that: a game. But the good Lord quickly reminds me. I hope I show the Lord passion like I do my Tar Heels. Because in the end, this game won’t be around. In the end, its passion for the Lord that’s more important than anything else. Sports, included. It’s nice to win and all but it doesn’t mean a thing in the long run.
I would hope that the second I’ve put a game in front of serving my God that I would be brought down. I don’t want my love for a game become an idol.
At the same time, I think it’s okay to have a passion for sports. Or anything else for that matter. God gave us the ability to express passion for different areas of life. But we must keep Him first.
